You know it and I know it: we have some good looking schools and they host some really cool events. We post pictures of them right here, like the time Lakeview Elementary cut the ribbon on its new playground or the time we put Dr. Seuss hats on hundreds of students or those teachers who dressed up as the seven dwarves. You know you like fun pictures.

6. Help in the college search

We have the experts and they are giving out advice right and left. We have tips from college admissions officers, scholarship opportunities and more. If you’re looking for college advice, this is a good place to come.

7. We break down the education jargon to help you know better what’s happening in your schools

Educators are wonderful, wonderful people. But sometimes education jargon can be a little overwhelming. We understand (and sympathize). Here on Children First you will find articles that talk about important issues in education and instruciton that don’t require a Master’s degree. Check out our articles on Common Core to see what we’re talking about.

8. We won’t give your email address to anyone else.

Honest. It stays right here.
